PAI promoting new surprise billing resources
The Physicians Advocacy Institute (PAI) is promoting two new resources that it developed to address surprise medical bills, including a two-page ‘Facts About Surprise Medical Bills’ fact sheet and a two-page ‘Questions and Answers About Surprise Medical Bills’ summary.
PAI notes that, “More than half (57%) of U.S. adults received a bill for medical services they thought were covered by health insurance, according to a 2018 survey by NORC at the University of Chicago. Patient access to needed physicians, particularly during emergencies, is negatively impacted by restrictive provider networks, out-of-date provider directories and physician reimbursement rates that don’t cover the true cost of medical services. Stopping surprise medical bills will require more transparency and fairness.”
